Modify Mortgage During Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Atty. Jordan E. Bublick - 1221 Brickell Ave., 9th Fl. - Miami, Florida

One possible avenue to save your home from foreclosure may be to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief and then to negotiate with the mortgage servicer for a mortgage modification while the Chapter 13 bankruptcy is pending. The filing of the bankruptcy stops the progress of the foreclosure action and may give the homeowner many months to negotiate a modification. Perhaps the mortgage company may be more willing to allow a mortgage modification if faced with the alternative of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan.
